Virtual stack vendor CohesiveFT part of Top Ten Tech Startups

Get your applications in a VM and run them locally or in the Cloud with CohesiveFT

CohesiveFT is one of the more interesting vendors that you probably haven't heard much about yet. Their "Elastic Servers" are custom application stacks as virtual images.

Basically, they have created a "software chassis" for VM images to rolled on-demand. The company maintains libraries of components and customers may add their own proprietary components to the library (for their use only) and construct the image of a virtual application stack. The resulting images are built, encapsulated, given a unique identity and injected with management and integration services.

For example you can quickly create a VM image of Mulewith a variety of accessories and run it locally or on EC2.

Now that they have been named one of InfoWorld's top 10 tech startups, I suspect you'll start seeing more of CFT.
